" a very ominous survey on the economy that can really affect each and every one of us. a vast majority of economists surveyed says a whooping eight out of ten businesses say the economy will grow only slightly this year, just 2% or less. that is simply not enough for job growth. jon: the very same survey by the national association for business economics finds companies are not hiring because of sluggish growth projections. 29% of respondents say they expect employment will increase in the next six months. that is the lowest number in nearly two years. but there is even more troubling news as 12% of those businesses polled say the labor market will weaken even more. and that is a big problem given that our national unemployment rate is stuck at more than 9%. jenna: those are the prediction. here is another report, it's far from the only kind of warning we have on the economic front. new fears today about another debt downgrade for the united states. that could happen, according to some reports, within the next month. elizabeth mcdonald with the fox business network is live with the det

at getting, yes, more u.s. exports into south korea, panama, and colombia. what could be better than that? we'd be better off having a trade deal with california. there are more buyers for american products in california than there are with all three of those countries combined, and the only apparent benefit is the employment of north korean slaves and the ability to use bank secrecy laws in panama. doesn't sound like job creation to me. and while the rhetoric of free trade sells well, it just never seems to work out as promised, because it's not really free. it's kind of rigged, you know. the u.s. job gains tend to turn into the opposite, u.s. job losses. in fact, they had to pass a law to subsidize lost jobs on a bill that they said was going to create them. no joke! not to mention, obviously, the data from nafta, potentially wonderful ideas in global trade being corrupted by special interests that rig the system. and the auction that buys washington politics has convinced the pro-wrestlers down there that, for some reason, this is good politics, even if it's terrible policy to accept riggi

kids who cannot get jobs, they are totally unhappy, and the unions are in there, throwing money to use them to get the jobs bill passed which is another big government spending that will never, ever, help the kids. >> why are you unions involved? >> one reason and one reason only: money. the union bosses like to fill their coffer. the jobs pill is stimulus repackaged under another name. and that will put huge monies into union jobs. forced union states and the money will they back to the big union bosses and not one of their workers will get anything. >> tell us the difference between grass roots organic and astroturf when pelosi called the tea party astroturf. >>guest: very dangerous to think of her mind, these are the warmed over hippies like nancy pelosi from the 60's and they do not like people like me, the middle class americans, stole their playbook. we want back to the 60's and studied radicals, the democratic socialists and we did it for good. >> putting them side-by-side on the right you have tea party gatherings and ill-be honest if you listen to some of the sound, you hea
